Prospect Watch: I think Quentin is ready; 0-3 and a double play!! He will fit right in. In prospect news, Jace Peterson played short and went 1-3 with a walk. Jonathan Galvez came in late for Quentin and went 0-2 with an RBI. Nothing of note of any prospect. CF Rico Noel who led the Texas League in stolen bases last year and is hitting .361/.439/.361 with RISP, has not appeared in a game in four days. Instead CF went to an infielder?.

Storm 2– Lancaster Jethawks 3
Prospect Watch: Casey Kelly made his second rehab start, and it did not start off well. The first three hitters all reached base, but Kelly was able to escape only allowing one run. He ran into more trouble in the second and third, but two outfield assists kept the score at 2-0. Kelly was taken out after striking out a batter after reaching his pitch limit. 72 pitches, 47 strikes.

TinCaps 4 – Dayton Dragons 7
Prospect Watch: Five more errors for the TinCaps; three by Fernando Perez, who was at third, as well as an error by both VanMeter and Bauers. The TinCaps already lead the minors in errors… at some point you have to wonder what is in the water.
